antibiotics and non-irradiated garlic

Did anybody try to combine antibiotics and non-irradiated garlic that Mr. Bob Anderson mentioned? I tried combining antibiotic that is susceptible to my Mrsa and garlic oil capsules but to no avail. I thought maybe someone tried combining the former and see if they are more potent to the mrsa and can eradicate it.

Yes, the combination of an appropriate antibiotic, plus supplements, and many hours soaking in garlic-infused baths helped clear our son's staph this summer.

He had been on immune-boosting supplements, probiotics, allicin and topical treatments, but no antibiotics, for almost a year before we tried the combination. It was not an easy route to take since he had constant outbreaks throughout the whole time.

He is still on all the supplements, and he has become resigned to the idea that he will have to stay on them for life. He is much more amenable to the idea now since garlic water has totally cured his acne :)!

Garlic oil, while healthful, is not the same as the active ingredient in crushed raw garlic.

Mom in Calif is right, the compounds in garlic oil are totally different than the compounds in crushed raw natural garlic (CRG). Eating garlic or garlic pills or oils greatly help to build the immune system but do nothing to directly attack the staph. Applying crushed raw non-irradiated garlic or water containing it directly to the site of the infection works by killing all staph, including MRSA, and no bacteria, including MRSA, can become immune to it.

Pharmaceutical antibiotics work by blocking chemical receptors on the outer cell walls of bacteria but if the receptors are of a different configuration, those antibiotics don't work, as in MRSA. The fat-soluble allicin in crushed raw garlic penetrates right through those bilipid cellular walls and gets into the interior of the bacteria and causes it to swell up and burst, killing it. No bacteria, including MRSA can become immune to that. That's why the allicin or the water containing it has to come into contact with the bacteria directly to work but when it is brought into contact it works every time.

Yes, MRSA can come back but CRG will kill it every time and MRSA cannot become immune to it. CRG and garlic water soaks are the best tool to stop an outbreak before it flares up into a major problem because once it gets deep inside it is a lot harder to get to.

It is important to use both oral and direct application to both build up the immune system and attack the MRSA direct. You can take as many garlic pills as you want and eat all the raw garlic you want and it will have little or no affect on the infectious processes. Direct application of CRG to the site of the lesion is the only way garlic works to directly kills MRSA cells.

Using garlic both internally and externally in combination with a program of pharmaceutical antibiotics is likely to be more efficatious than either approach alone. There is at least one published study proving this and some yet-unpublished research which indicates that will likely prove that this multi-pronged attack is the best one.

I suggest you read all the garlic related threads in this forum and learn all you can about how garlic works as it is the best place on the internet to learn about how to use garlic to combat bacterial infections of all kinds, including MRSA and also multiple drug resistant tuberculosis (MDRT), e-Coli, ulcers and oirritable bowel syndrome among many other bacterial infections

An educated patient makes better decisions.

Good luck to you.

Where do you find non-irradiated garlic? I got some at the grocery
today to give it a try on my son with MRSA but I didn't see any green in
the center of the garlic clove like I read about. Can someone direct me
where to find non-irradiated garlic and maybe a pic showing what one
looks like to be sure I'm using something that will work? Thanks so
much!

Every clove of every normal garlic bulb has a small growing shoot in its center in a sheath in an otherwise solid clove. Remove a clove from a bulb and cut it vertically down the center and look for a little shoot with tiny leaves and if you see one, your garlic is good and has not been irradiated. But, if there is no sprout, only an empty sheath then the garlic has been irradiated and won't work.

If you saw an empty sheath with no growing sprout, I was irradiated but it doesdn't have to be green if there were a white or eggshell-colored sprout it would still be good garlic but if there was nothing in the center then it was irradiated.

In addition to the big beautiful bulbs in the produce dept, lots of times in the spice section or the Hispanic foods section there are some smaller bulbs in little boxes with cellophane windows so you can see the garlic. There's usually two per box. Those are seldom irradiated. You may also find some larger bulbs in a healtyh food store. It's hard to get good garlic in the spring since harvest time is early to mid summer.

Either growing your own or knowing someone who does are your best bets. If there is a local farmers market open you may be able to find some there.

If you can't find any good fresh garlic then garlic powder usually works if it has been made right and even if poorly made, usually still has some potency.

If you want to try growing your own you can Google "Growing Garlic" and get several places to buy although planting time isn't until fall and harvest time the following summer so that option is for the future not the present.

Good luck to you.

To Mom in Calif, I thought applying CRG directly to the affected surface is better than garlic water. Is your son's acne in his face? Is it too harsh to appply it directly to the face? But Mr. Bob Anderson said that using CRG directly does not leave any scars.
Thanks in advance.

Good point.

If you catch the outbreak while it is still small it will clear it up quickly and leave no scars. On the other hand if there is already a large open pit type of lesion, the chances of leaving a scar increase.

If crg is applied directly it will burn like crazy for a minute or two but it will burn less or not at all when diluted in water, depending on concentration in the water. When one is dealing with a large lesion or a large area containing many lesions, the burning sensation can be quite intense, which is why many people prefer to use it watered down. Garlic water is also less likely to burn tender skin.

Hope this helps.
